County water czar says we won't recognize herbicide damage
A Press Democrat story (5/16/04, "County water agency faulted/Too much herbicide sprayed along access roads, state says") said water agency officials "received a handful of complaints about brown vegetation along the creeks and one from a homeowner whose backyard garden adjacent to the creek was wiped out by the herbicides."
County water czar Randy Poole says not to worry: "Some people will say it's disastrous, but it isn't. In six to eight weeks everything will be brown and you won't notice."
